The "Dengeki Bunko 25th Anniversary & New Work Unveiling Stage" event at Dengeki Game Festival 2018 announced on Saturday that author Kouhei Kadono and illustrator Kouji Ogata's Boogiepop light novel series is inspiring two new manga series. Naoki Koshimizu (The Isolator - Realization of Absolute Solitude) will draw Boogiepop Returns: VS Imaginator in Monthly Comic Dengeki Daioh magazine:
Witness the first appearances of the mysterious Towa Organization - a player in the Boogiepop Phantom anime series - as Boogiepop finds himself hunted by the synthetic human known only as "Spooky E." All the while, the deadly "Imaginator" is out to change the world one mind at a time. Can you escape from the clutches of the Imaginator...?
Yoshihiro Kawabata will launch Boogiepop at Dawn (Yowaake no Boogiepop) in the June issue of Dengeki G's Comic magazine on April 28.
Seven Seas Entertainment published the original light novel in English, and it describes the story:
The origin of Boogiepop revealed at last! Not only is this the long-awaited story of how Boogiepop was born, but it is also the tale of four very strange individuals: a detective, an eater of fear, a popular writer and a skilled assassin. Uncover all the secrets!
Update: While the presentation on Saturday noted that the June issue of Dengeki G's Comic magazine will ship on April 30, the April issue of the same magazine (which shipped on February 28) stated the June issue will ship on April 28. April 30 is a public holiday in Japan.
